PLAN NOT POPULAR.
That of Making Appropriations
Next Monday Night.
ALD. SOHEOEDIB'S KOTIOH IS IDLE.
Em the atoning Paper Deprecates Bach
a Coin nasi Caatiaas the Hew Coaartl
to Maka Bute Slowly aa Sack aa Iaapor t
Even the Union deprecates the
course proposed hv Aid. Schroeder's
motion in last Monday night's coun
cil meeting to adjourn .until next
Monday night to make the annual
appropriations. There is no neces.
sity fcrsnch undne haste in such an
important matter, and, as stated io
Tuc Ak;ls of yesterday, the policy
of the council should be fullv out
lined, plans laid out and estimates
made before the apportionment of
available funds should be made. In
the light of these reasonable sugges
tions. Aid. Schroeder's motion is
idle, and the mayor and council
should so regard it. if they give it
serious reflection and consideration
The policy of past administrations
has been to exercise judgment in
these matters and to take advantage
of the limit authorized ty law, and
therefore it has always been toward
the end of June before the council
devoted itself to the formal consider
ation of the appropriations for the
year. The Amirs in discussing this
subject bears no ill-will toward the
administration, as a whole, just em
barked. In this its attitude is 0ite
in contrast with that of the morning
paper toward Mayor Medill through
out the two years he has officiated as
the city s executive, and who, by the
way, is conceded by fair-minded peo
ple, irrespective of politics, to have
given the city one of the cleanest,
most business-like and progressive
administrations the city has ever
had. Revenues have been judicious
ly distributed, appropriations prop
erly apportioned and properly ex
pended, and despite dull times and
oppression, public improvements
have gone steadily forward, until in
fact, there is little to do other than
to complete that which is now so
well under way and which has been
pushed to the utmost limit possible.
The principal streets are paved or in
course of paving, and with proceed
ings under way for work interrupted
by the county court. The sidewalk
system is fully outlined and mostly
carried out. The standpipe on the
bluff is arranged for. etc. But of
course there is much to do in con
necting up, as to the standpipe and
extending the water system to the
bluff regions as contemplated by this
Take Tlaia to Calculate.
It takes time to calculate as to
the expense involved in this work of
completion. - Mavor Medill's vale
dictory deals intelligently with what
has been done and outlines compre
hensively what remains to be done,
it gives facts and hgures in a man
ner that cannot fail to be of great
value to his successor, but estimates
must be made and all matters taken
into view before the city commits
itself. Hence the ntter absence of
knowledge of the situation by Aid.
Schroeder as evidenced by his mo
tion. The Union seems to have great
fears of Mayor Knox having an ad
ministrative policy similar to Mayor
Medill's. The Unfan should not feel
sensitive if the new mayor sees fit
to walk in the footsteps 6f so excel
lent a predecessor in some things.
The Teaaple Ball tiers' Faraiah Delight.
The concert given under the au
spices of the Temple Builders of the
Christian church at Association hall
last evening was a delightful affair,
and fully deserved the liberal patron

manner, and each called forth the
hearty encores of the appreciative au.
dience. It was an enjoyable event.

What and Where Is Heaven?
Alger says that "heaven" is not dis
tinctively a world situated somewhere
in immensity, but that it is "a state of
pure spiritual existence, having nothing
to do with any special time or place.
He further says that "heaven is a state
of tho sonl or a state of society under
the rule of bod s will, either in this life
or in a f uturo state of existence. " From
the above it is clear that the great au
thority therein quoted considered that
"heaven" does not mean a bounded
place of abode, but simply unlimited
existence in a state of joy for tbe souls
of virtuous respecters of God's laws.
